Dance Festival in Asbury Park
There is a festival happening in Asbury Park, New Jersey.
- As of May 23, 2023, these are the details that have been released about this event.
Asbury Park Dance Festival Presents: Dance Is Life
Are you ready to move your body? Asbury Park Dance Festival presents Dance is Life, a free outdoor celebration on June 18th that honors the power of dance to move and inspire a community.
If you’ve never been to a Dance is Life event, you’re in for a serious treat.
Dance is Life brings the art of dance (specifically Hustle) directly to the public, connecting them with their community by offering a mixture of instruction, demonstration and social interaction that engages our community physically. Their goal is to create an inclusive, interactive and educational event that empowers participants to come together and express themselves through dance.
Why hustle? Hustle has a deep connection to civil rights, gay rights, women’s rights and American culture and offers a form of collective healing, transformation, and celebration. Led by former Martha Graham Dance Company dancer and Hustle evangelist Abdiel Jacobsen and world-renowned DJ and co-founder of Soul in the Horn Natasha Diggs, the event offers participants the chance to experience this vibrant dance form themselves.
The event is sponsored by the Asbury Park Dance Festival (APDF), an organization that brings world-renowned dancers and dance companies to the Jersey Shore in support of Arts Ed NJ and the arts education advocacy.
